The Alchemist & Budgie ft Prodigy & Roc Marciano "In Heaven's Home" lyrics:
Black-hearted nigga, tales from the dark side
Facts when I rap, foul shit of course
I don't mind if I do shoot a few birds down
Nigga I'm a vulture and they just canary clowns
How they got fans to me is mind-bogglin'
I'm extremely good with rap, they know what time it is
Half past 1-8-7, 9-11 is too late
The food I ate, they need reverends
Body of christ, face of a playboy
Throw me to the hoes, I show love with great poise
DSL mouth, if she a bad bitch I'll take her to the house
Sex and hardcore rap, her new vice
She hang around me too much, I breathe life
Where it's lack thereof
All the shootouts and drama excites her
Face the mirror, taste the syrup
Spray a gear up and relocate to Europe
Mid-weight to spirit, my wounds fade but can't heal it
My game loose they can't hem it
Ralph Lauren [?] London
Floorin' limbs down on Lynden let a nigga flourish
Lord forgive me for my sins, drive BM's
Condominiums with three m's, tres bien
The Biatch hit the D at eight PM
I beat the pussy like I'm fresh outta the P-E-N
The G-E-M, money team 'em like the GM
You see him, trips to the Carribean
I'm peein' on your well bein'
No damn ten bricks from [?]
That's enough snow to go skiin,' I'm OD-in'
It's no BS - Marc
